THE EDITOR, Sir:The leader of the Opposition doesn't have a God-given right to his position and, therefore, nothing is wrong with challenging him. The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) must be able to behave responsibly throughout this affair. There shouldn't be any mudslinging or character assassination.
Mr Holness cannot claim most of the credit for Beverley Prince's victory in Cassia Park. Here was someone whose performance wasn't tied to any particular constituency, and so her victory wasn't a surprise.
Andrew Holness' performance has not been that of a traditional opposition leader. There has been no fiery talk; only a subdued, laid-back personality.
Mrs Portia Simpson Miller, while in Opposition, kept referring to the JLP as "wicked and uncaring". This characterisation worked perfectly. If the JLP is to stand a chance of returning to Jamaica House, someone like Shaw would be best suited. But anybody who is going to lead Jamaica will have to show alternatives to the current crop of leaders.
